      1. Ensure the optional conversion service is enabled. Maybe on experimental Sakai.
      2. Create an assignment.
      3. Submit to the assignment, adding an attachment, a doc or docx file.
      4. You should now be able to grade the assignment in Grader and see the doc or docx file load up as a PDF.

      Description

      Add optional converter for assignment submission attachment types.  Grader needs a way to preview document types, such as docx and doc, with a reasonable accuracy. The current document preview way of converting them to html on the fly is not satisfactory. The strategy will be to use LibreOffice Online to do the conversion. This service will either be available as a docker container on the same host as your Sakai installation, or available as a standalone service. If no service is enabled, fall back to link previewing, ie : downloading.
